General manager Kyrie Irving, who currently belongs to the Dallas Maverickshe is undoubtedly one of the most talented players in the history of the NBA, with a skill that is rarely seen in the league.
Despite his incredible talent, Irving has been a liability for the teams he has played for since forcing the Cleveland Cavaliers to trade him back in 2017.
Each of Irving’s stops since leaving the Cavs has ended in disappointment, either due to injury issues or off-court struggles, overshadowing whatever he’s accomplished on the floor.
Irving will be a free agent this summer, and while there has been talk of him re-signing with the Mavericks, there has been speculation that he could sign with the Los Angeles Lakers or take his talents elsewhere.
Nick Wright of Fox Sports believes that none of the league’s top contenders should bother pursuing the former point guard because he is not a great player.
“Kyrie doesn’t make sense to any contender in the league who can get him … Kyrie is not a winning player.”

At the moment, there is no word on what will happen with Irving, because he could stay in Dallas to see if the duo with Luka Doncic works or if he will go to Los Angeles to join LeBron James again.
It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that Irving could struggle to find a new team, with franchises around the league no longer buying what he’s selling.
There is no doubt that when he is engaged and motivated, Irving is one of the best guards in the league and one of the toughest players to have the basketball in his hands.
The problem is that Irving is a wild card and can lose his cool at any time without considering how it affects his team and teammates, which is obviously a red flag for interested teams.
